Konami is finally making a new Bomberman game in Super Bomberman R, slated for Switch. On Reddit, the company actually took the time to explain the meaning behind “R” in the title.
“R is a throw back feel for the Devs. to when games could simply have a letter and allow that letter to carry many meanings. It symbolized Returns & Reborn because this game is such a homage to SNES and SB3. But it also mean Rangers, to represent the diverse and colorful group of Bomberman characters who patrol the galaxy.”
Super Bomberman R will be out for Switch’s launch on March 3.
